I have never traveled by plane in my life because I wouldn’t have the necessity to do it but I would like to do it in the future, I think it would be interesting to visit some European countries and Asian countries to get to know different cultures and ways of living in those parts of the world.

Thanks for the episode.
Great site!

I traveled twice by planes from Myanmar to Thailand. Thailand is a beautiful and wonderful country. It has many cultural buildings, delicious street foods, warm citizens and lovely bl actors. It 's very interesting and I love Thailand.
